The atheists eat babies meme is a dark humor meme used to illustrate the fact that many people distrust atheists and equate atheism with immorality (see: Distrust of atheists and Atheism and morality).[1] There have been several studies indicating that many people have a low opinion of atheists (see: Views on atheists).

However, as can be seen below, China which has the largest atheist population in the world and state atheism, has citizens who are eating powdered human baby flesh because they believe it increases a person's stamina, increases sexual health and is also seen as a medicinal 'cure-all'[2][3] (see:Communist China and baby eating).

Razib Khan points out in Discover Magazine, "most secular nations in the world are those of East Asia, in particular what are often termed “Confucian societies.” It is likely therefore that the majority of the world’s atheists are actually East Asian."[5] See: Asian atheism and Global atheism

China has the world's largest atheist population.[6][7] In addition, China practices state atheism in that it requires members of the Communist Party of China to be atheists and the Chinese government does engage in some degree of religious persecution (See also: China and atheism).

China and the consumption of powdered baby flesh

See also: Abortion and atheism and Atheism and human rights violations

In 2014, The Washington Times reported: "China’s one child policy, baby trafficking, and sex trafficking of North Korean women aren’t the worst human rights violation happening in the country. Aborting innocent and healthy unborn children and eating them to boost one’s stamina and sexual health is.[8]

In 2014, The Washington Times reported:

China’s one child policy, baby trafficking, and sex trafficking of North Korean women aren’t the worst human rights violation happening in the country. Aborting innocent and healthy unborn children and eating them to boost one’s stamina and sexual health is.

South Korean customs officials recently seized thousands of pills filled with powdered human baby flesh arriving from China. Since August 2011, South Korean officials have intercepted more than 17000 pills smuggled from China.

South Korean officials became aware of a horrific practice of eating aborted fetuses after Seoul Broadcasting System showed a documentary on Chinese doctors who performed abortions and then ate the fetuses. One Chinese doctor on the documentary took out fetuses from his refrigerator.[9]

Soviet Union, atheism, famine and individuals eating children

See also: Atheism and cannibalism and Atheism and children and Soviet Union and morality

Joseph Stalin, the Premier of the Soviet Union from 6 May 1941 to 5 March 1953, patronised the League of Militant Atheists, whose chief aim, under the leadership of Yemelyan Yaroslavsky, was to propagate militant atheism and eradicate religion.

According to the University of Cambridge, historically, the "most notable spread of atheism was achieved through the success of the 1917 Russian Revolution, which brought the Marxist-Leninists to power."[10]

Atheism was an integral component of Marxist-Leninist/Maoist communist ideology (see: Atheism and communism).

Although the atheists is a dark humor meme, in the atheistic Soviet Union during a famine there were cases of adults preying on children for purposes of cannibalism (see: Soviet Union and cannibalism and Soviet Union and morality).[11]

Kerry Kubulius in his article entitled Cannibalism in the Soviet Union wrote:

In the years 1920-21, the Soviet Union was hit hard by famine. Civil war had wiped out grain stores, and drought affected harvests. Struggling peasants and Gulag prisoners alike fell victim to starvation. Hungry individuals ate what they could find – the last of their livestock, cats and dogs, and then finally, fellow human beings. Cannibalism in Soviet Russia and elsewhere in the Soviet Union manifested itself in prisons camps, in urban settings, and in the countryside. The practice of cannibalism was seen as a survival measure rather than a true crime by those who had nothing else to eat....

It goes without saying that cannibalism in the Soviet Union was outlawed. Those who were caught cannibalizing their fellow citizens were sent to prisons, even though cannibalism was practiced in the Gulag, as well...

While some individuals ate the bodies of the already dead, others murdered for the purpose of providing themselves with food. Gangs of children would kill adults, while adults would find children to murder and eat. Escaped prisoners might take along fellow inmates to serve as future meals – unbeknownst to the escapees' companions themselves.

Cannibalism in the Soviet Union was sometimes a result of an individual or individuals seeking revenge.[12]

Soviet Union, Lysenkoism and famine

North Korea, famine and the eating of children

Flag of North Korea

North Korea practices state atheism and belief in God is actively discouraged.[13] Open Doors, an organization based in the United States, has put North Korea at the very top of its list of countries where Christians face significant persecution - for 12 years in a row.[14]

The Express reports:

A North Korean man living in Australia has claimed that human flesh is served up to eat in the country’s third largest city.

Sung Min Jeong, 44, claims that in Chongjin – a city at the tip of the North Korean coast – a shopkeeper serves up human meat.

Fears that famine-stricken North Koreans are being forced to eat human flesh heightened earlier this year following claims a man was executed for murdering his two children for food.

Fears of cannibalism in the country surfaced in 2003 too, amid testimony from refugees who claimed poor harvests and food aid sanctions had resulted in children being killed and corpses cut up for food.

According to reports, requests by the United Nations World Food Programme to access "farmers' markets" where human meat was said to be traded, were turned down by Pyongyang, citing "security reasons".

Those caught selling human meat face execution, but one source told the North Korean Refugees Assistance Fund: "Pieces of 'special' meat are displayed on straw mats for sale.

"People know where they come from, but they don't talk about it."[15]

Atheists eating babies and subjective morality

Under a naturalistic, atheist worldview, babies are merely a collection of atoms and the outcome of an accidental arrangement of atoms.

Eating a baby is no different than eating a salad under such a worldview.

In a naturalistic, atheistic worldview, the universe is merely the outcome of accidental collocations of atoms and eventually all the suns in the universe will burn out.

See: Causes of atheists eating babies and Atheism, agnosticism and pessimism).

The Debunking Atheists blog states: "An atheist may... say murder, rape, and eating babies are wrong; but when asked why, they will not have a final reason, or authority, to which they can appeal to, besides their own subjectivity... So it is merely a personal choice not to."[16] See: Atheism and morality and Atheist population and immorality and Objective morality

Causes of atheists eating babies

There are a number of causes of atheists eating babies (see: Causes of atheists eating babies).

Atheist Revolution on atheists eat babies meme

See also: Atheism and humor and Atheism and mockery

The website Atheist Revolution says about the atheists eat babies meme:

I've always liked this particular meme. It manages to be silly while simultaneously poking fun at Christians for some of the absurd things they believe about atheists. And yes, that is my take on the primary meaning of this meme: it serves to highlight the absurd lengths to which some Christians will go to demonize atheists.

"But do any Christians really believe that atheists eat babies?" Although this isn't the point of the meme, I suppose it is a fair question. I suspect that if you take a moment to consider some of the things many Christians at least claim to believe, this one will strike you as at least somewhat plausible. If not believing in their preferred god(s) makes us immoral, evil, and almost certainly Satan worshipers, is it really that much of a stretch to assume that we probably eat babies too?[17]

Atheists eat babies meme and people mistakenly associating atheism with Satanism

See also: Atheism and satanic deception and LaVeyan Satanism and The Satanic Temple

As far as dark humor, another reason why the meme may have developed is that many people mistakenly associate atheism with Satanism and allegations that satanists have been involved in the ritualistic infant sacrifices.[18]

Although LaVeyan Satanism is a form of atheism, it does not hold that Satan is real being. Specifically, LaVeyan Satanism is a form of atheism which extolls the values of Satan which are described in the Bible. It is a very prideful and hedonistic worldview. Some specific characteristics of Leveyan Satanism is that it incorporates egoism, self-deification, the occult/magic, Social Darwinism and naturalism. It was founded by Anton LeVey in 1966.

See also: Distrust of atheists and Views on atheists

Jim Scott, Vice Chairman of Florida Atheists and Secular Humanists (FLASH), said: "The term 'atheist' has such a negative connotation. They think being an atheist means you eat babies and worship the Devil."[20]

Dr. John D. Ferrer wrote about the atheists eat babies meme and about atheism and cannibalism:

...we see that a sample of atheists aren’t principally opposed to eating babies, although, we have no way of knowing how far this green light shines across the world of atheists. We don’t know how many atheists would chime in with vocal support. Fortunately these atheists have so far abstained from eating people because they find it “distasteful” and risky.[21]
